Woods Hall is one of St. John’s chief ministries. It was created in the 1950’s as a community and economic development outreach to Madeline Island. In 2013, we launched an ambitious capital campaign to renovate the 60-year old building. With over 70 artists, we needed the room!
And.... We made it! $446, 440 has been raised through the amazing generosity of our community. That is just amazing. Almost a ½ million dollars, with each dollar a vote of confidence in the mission of Woods Hall. With the help of an initial matching grant from the Woods Hall Charitable Funds of $100,000., 125 individuals and 10 foundations, we are making progress to complete our vision to:
expand the sales area
create a more welcoming entrance, facing Main Street
repair our studio floors and update electrical, heating and plumbing systems, and
re-design and repair the loom room roof.
So, mark your calendars...
